On Thrusday, Google’s AI program AlphaGo has defeated the Chinese Go master Ke, for second times by taking an impregnable 2: 0 lead in the best of the three series designed to test the limits of computers in terms of people on complex tasks.

Go is a very complex board game, dating back thousands of years, in which two participants participate, which put black and white stones in the grid. It is popular in Asian countries, and the most senior players come from China, Japan and South Korea.

Ke, the 19-year-old world is gone. 1, was clearly disappointed, pulled his hair and put his head on the table in the last minutes of the second match against AlphaGo.

“Almost like the last year AlfaGo played, it’s very close to humanity, but at the end of the game, it’s like God.” Following Tuesday’s first game of the season, Ke said he would not compete with AI again due to its rapid growth.

The victory over the world’s best player, many of whom are expected to win for years, came after Google’s DeepMind unit’s AI program won a South Korean Go professional’s game in a similar exhibition match last year.

This week, organized by the eastern eastern river of Wuzhen and joined by local authorities and Google’s parent, Alphabet’s best rice, was one of the top US search giants since it saw Beijing to provide better market access.

Google has made it clear that it is not attractive for marketing. Your upcoming feature is said to have the same data as the one shown in the normal search.

Ever since AlphaGo defeated Lee Sedol a year ago, AI has set the agenda for China’s largest policy makers, and for the first time this year has been included in Premier Li Keqiang’s annual study report. This document sets out China’s top policy priorities.


For Google, AlphaGo’s victory in China has been a marketing force in a country where its mainstream services have been blocked for a long time, and local competitors between search engine, email and video sites have grown in 2010.

Although the Mandarin and English live stream was broadcast on Youtube, which was blocked in China, the match was widely reported via local news broadcasts and social media.

Demis Hassabis, the founder of DeepMind who followed the match, said, “Ke jie has pushed AlphaGo to the border.” Twitter Inc. is also blocked in China.
